Now there’s a Roomba that will clean your smartphone or tablet screen for you


Were you ever too tired to clean your smartphone or tablet? Was it just too tiring a task to endure? Well, Japanese company, Takara Tomy has a solution for you! If you’re familiar with the Roomba, then this should be pretty self-explanatory — it’s a roomba for your smartphone or tablet.

If you don’t know what a Roomba is, that’s okay too. The Automee-S, is a 2.75 inch polisher that automatically roams around your device and cleans it for you. The device is equipped with 3 tires, 2 of which are made of special cleaning paper to remove the dirt. The Automee-S has sensors onboard so the little guy doesn’t go falling off the edges of your device. Here’s a video so you can see the device in action:

If you’re interested in the device, it goes in sale this March in Japan for 1,575 yen or around $17.

    @Seamus McSeamus: You are looking right at him. I am too lazy to clean my screen. You should seen my smartphone and laptop.

    With that said, I’m probably too lazy to actually pick up this device and put it on my smartphone, too. What a dilemma!
